The city of Alhambra rallied support Thursday to complete the Long Beach Freeway tunnel, closing the so-called "710 gap."

The proposed tunnel would connect the 710 Freeway to the 134 and 210 freeways in Pasadena.

Supporters say it would cut traffic congestion. But there are some people who aren't so happy with the plan.

The two sides spoke out Thursday.
